We have passed through the first of the three gates of Summer.
Memorial Day is behind us, the 4th of July and Labor Day before. How in the heck is it 2016? I just got used to it being 1998.
In any case, I’m prepping to be sent off to the Middle East again in a couple of weeks so this weekend will be devoted to all of the stuff that I seriously need to do before I go off to Qatar. This includes, but is not limited to, setting up the air conditioner for the summer season. (I think that this is the latest we’ve done it… It’s certainly the latest we’ve done it for several years.)
But we also have to get the usual stuff done. Costco. PetSmart. Grocery Store. Laundry, sweet, laundry.
I will also schedule a cheat night in there somewhere. I got Chinese last week and, sadly, left that meal disappointed. This must not happen again. Part of me wants to say “heck with it!” and have a cheat breakfast. Sure, you’re giving up pizza or sandwiches from that amazing place that makes the grilled chicken breast sandwich that is second only to the grilled chicken breast sandwich you had in Athens, Ohio back in 1993… but in its place, you’re getting pancakes and biscuits and ranch potatoes.
Maybe that’s on the docket, then.
So… what’s on your docket?
